My Grandfather on my paternal side is Jose Remigio Valdez, born circa 1874, died on 24 December 1939 in Farmington, San Juan County, New Mexico.
Remigio married Juana Maria Montolla.
Juanita's parents were Juan Pablo Montolla and Maria Dolores Medina.
Maria Dolores Medina may also be known as Maria Dolores Sanchez.
I have found a few Remigio Valdez persons, it is a possibility my Grandfather was a Junior, named for his father of the same name.
Not one of my numerous aunts and uncles ever inquired about their father's ancestors.
I have located several sibling birth records, not one of them had the paternal or maternal grandparents listed.
My Grandmother Juanita's children are:
